Create and Share a Project

In this article, you will learn how to create a new project in ALICE, define project settings, upload a BIM file, and invite users to collaborate on your project.

Create a Project

  1. Click on the + New Project button in the upper right corner of the project list page.
  2. Name your project and define your settings, such as what type of currency is used, and whether metric or imperial units will be used. Required settings are marked with a red asterisk.

  4. Click Upload & Create Project

Note ALICE is compatible with RVT, NWC, NWD, and DGN files. If your BIM file is in another format, reach out and we can advise you on file conversion options.
